There has been considerable ballyhoo (and rightfully so) about this month's 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first appearance on American network TV. But Beatlemania wasn't the only next-big-thing going on in music in 1964.
Some of classic rock's best known and most highly regarded bands were founded in 1964. A surprising number are still active 50 years later. To them and all the others, a hearty Happy Anniversary!
